Acorda Therapeutics Reports First Quarter 2022 Financial Results

May 12, 2022

Acorda Therapeutics Reports First Quarter 2022 Financial Results INBRIJA® (levodopa inhalation powder) Q1 2022 net revenue of $3.7 million; 26% decrease from Q1 2021 AMPYRA® (dalfampridine) Q1 2022 net revenue of $14.9 million; 27% decrease from Q1 2021 2022 AMPYRA net sales guidance reiterated at $68-$78 million Agreements with Biopas Laboratories to commercialize INBRIJA in Latin America Launch of INBRIJA in Germany expected in June 2022 ARDSLEY, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Acorda Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq: ACOR) today provided a business update and reported its financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2022. “Although Q1 over Q1 net sales decreased, we believe that this is not reflective of a trend for either Inbrija or Ampyra. We were pleased to see that as the Omicron wave waned, net sales of both products rebounded substantially. In particular, Inbrija sales, which were similar in January and February, increased by approximately 85% in March over February and continued to increase through April,” said Ron Cohen, M.D., Acorda’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “In addition, while we historically have seen Q4 to Q1 declines due to patient overstocking in Q4 and insurance resetting in January, the decline was exacerbated this year due in part to a significantly higher estimate for discounts and allowances, or D&A, in Q1 2022 compared to Q1 2021. We expect D&A charges to be lower over the remainder of the year, and we are reiterating our 2022 guidance of $68M-$78M in Ampyra net sales.” INBRIJA Ex-US Today Acorda announced distribution and supply agreements with Biopas Laboratories to commercialize INBRIJA in nine countries within Latin America, including Brazil and Mexico. Under the terms of the agreements, Acorda will receive a significant, double-digit, tiered percentage of the selling price of INBRIJA in Latin America in exchange for supply of the product. Acorda will also receive sales-based milestones. Esteve plans to launch INBRIJA in Germany in June 2022. Germany is the largest pharmaceutical market in Europe, and the fourth largest in the world. First Quarter 2022 Financial Results For the quarter ended March 31, 2022, the Company reported INBRIJA net revenue of $3.7 million, compared to $5.0 million for the same quarter in 2021. The Company reported AMPYRA net revenue of $14.9 million, compared to $20.3 million for the same quarter in 2021. As previously disclosed, AMPYRA lost its exclusivity and generics entered the market in 2018, and the Company expects AMPYRA revenue to continue to decline. Research and development (R&D) expenses for the quarter ended March 31, 2022 were $1.7 million, including negligible share-based compensation expenses, compared to $4.7 million, including $0.2 million of share-based compensation for the same quarter in 2021. Sales, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses for the quarter ended March 31, 2022 were $26.9 million, including $0.5 million of share-based compensation, compared to $34.0 million, including $0.5 million of share-based compensation for the same quarter in 2021. Change in fair value of derivative liability for the quarter ended March 31, 2022 was negligible, compared to $0.2 million for the same quarter in 2021. Provision for income taxes for the quarter ended March 31, 2022 was $0.2 million, compared to a benefit from income taxes of $3.2 million for the same quarter in 2021. The Company reported a GAAP net loss of $25.6 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2022, or $1.93 per diluted share. GAAP net loss in the same quarter of 2021 was $33.5 million, or $3.53 per diluted share. Non-GAAP net loss for the quarter ended March 31, 2022 was $22.0 million, or $1.66 per diluted share. Non-GAAP net loss in the same quarter of 2021 was $23.3 million, or $2.46 per diluted share. This quarterly non-GAAP net loss measure, more fully described below under “Non-GAAP Financial Measures,” excludes share-based compensation charges, non-cash interest charges on our debt, changes in the fair value of acquired contingent consideration, changes in the fair value of derivative liability related to our 2024 convertible senior secured notes, and expenses that pertain to non-routine corporate restructurings. A reconciliation of the GAAP financial results to non-GAAP financial results is included with the attached financial statements. At March 31, 2022, the Company had cash, cash equivalents, and restricted cash of $51.5 million, compared to $65.2 million at year end 2021. Restricted cash includes $18.6 million in escrow related to the 6% semi-annual interest portion, payable in cash or stock, of the convertible note exchange completed in December 2019. If the Company elects to pay interest due in stock, a corresponding amount of the restricted cash will be released from escrow. Financial Guidance For the full year 2022, Acorda continues to expect AMPYRA net revenue to be $68 – $78 million, and operating expenses to be $110 – $120 million. The operating expense guidance is a non-GAAP projection that excludes restructuring costs and share-based compensation as more fully described below under “Non-GAAP Financial Measures.” Webcast If you register for the Webcast, you will have the opportunity to submit a written question for the Q&A portion of the presentation.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures This press release includes financial results prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (GAAP) and also certain historical and forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures. In particular, Acorda has provided non-GAAP net income (loss), adjusted to exclude the items below, and has provided 2022 operating expense guidance on a non-GAAP basis. Non-GAAP financial measures are not an alternative for financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. However, the Company believes that the presentation of non-GAAP net income (loss), when viewed in conjunction with actual GAAP results, provides investors with a more meaningful understanding of our ongoing and projected operating performance because this measure excludes (i) non-cash compensation charges and benefits that are substantially dependent on changes in the market price of our common stock, (ii) non-cash interest charges related to the accounting for our convertible debt which are in excess of the actual interest expense owing on such convertible debt, as well as non-cash interest related to the Fampyra royalty monetization and acquired Biotie debt, (iii) changes in the fair value of acquired contingent consideration which do not correlate to our actual cash payment obligations in the relevant periods, (iv) expenses that pertain to corporate restructurings which are not routine to the operation of the business, and (v) changes in the fair value of derivative liability relating to the 2024 convertible senior secured notes, which is a non-cash charge and not related to the operation of the business. The Company believes its non-GAAP net income (loss) measure helps indicate underlying trends in the Company's business and is important in comparing current results with prior period results and understanding projected operating performance. Also, management uses this non-GAAP financial measure to establish budgets and operational goals, and to manage the Company's business and to evaluate its performance. In addition to non-GAAP net income (loss), we have provided 2022 operating expense guidance on a non-GAAP basis, as the guidance excludes restructuring costs and share-based compensation charges. Due to the forward looking nature of this information, the amount of compensation charges needed to reconcile this measure to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure is dependent on future changes in the market price of our common stock and is not available at this time. Non-GAAP financial measures are not an alternative for financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. However, the Company believes that the presentation of this non-GAAP financial measure, when viewed in conjunction with actual GAAP results, provides investors with a more meaningful understanding of our ongoing and projected operating performance because it excludes (i) expenses that pertain to corporate restructurings not routine to the operation of our business, and (ii) non-cash charges that are substantially dependent on changes in the market price of our common stock. We believe this non-GAAP financial measure helps indicate underlying trends in the Company’s business and is important in comparing current results with prior period results and understanding expected operating performance. Also, management uses this non-GAAP financial measure to establish budgets and operational goals, and to manage the Company's business and to evaluate its performance.

All statements, other than statements of historical facts, regarding management's expectations, beliefs, goals, plans or prospects should be considered forward-looking. These statements are subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially, including: we may not be able to successfully market AMPYRA, INBRIJA or any other products under development; the COVID-19 pandemic, including related restrictions on in-person interactions and travel, and the potential for illness, quarantines and vaccine mandates affecting our management, employees or consultants or those that work for other companies we rely upon, could have a material adverse effect on our business operations or product sales; our ability to attract and retain key management and other personnel, or maintain access to expert advisors; our ability to raise additional funds to finance our operations, repay outstanding indebtedness or satisfy other obligations, and our ability to control our costs or reduce planned expenditures; risks associated with the trading of our common stock and our reverse stock split; risks related to our corporate restructurings, including our ability to outsource certain operations, realize expected cost savings and maintain the workforce needed for continued operations; risks associated with complex, regulated manufacturing processes for pharmaceuticals, which could affect whether we have sufficient commercial supply of INBRIJA to meet market demand; our reliance on third-party manufacturers for the production of commercial supplies of AMPYRA and INBRIJA; third-party payers (including governmental agencies) may not reimburse for the use of INBRIJA at acceptable rates or at all and may impose restrictive prior authorization requirements that limit or block prescriptions; reliance on collaborators and distributors to commercialize INBRIJA and AMPYRA outside the U.S.; competition for INBRIJA and AMPYRA, including increasing competition and accompanying loss of revenues in the U.S. from generic versions of AMPYRA (dalfampridine) following our loss of patent exclusivity; the ability to realize the benefits anticipated from acquisitions because, among other reasons, acquired development programs are generally subject to all the risks inherent in the drug development process and our knowledge of the risks specifically relevant to acquired programs generally improves over time; the risk of unfavorable results from future studies of INBRIJA (levodopa inhalation powder) or from other research and development programs, or any other acquired or in-licensed programs; the occurrence of adverse safety events with our products; the outcome (by judgment or settlement) and costs of legal, administrative or regulatory proceedings, investigations or inspections, including, without limitation, collective, representative or class-action litigation; failure to protect our intellectual property, to defend against the intellectual property claims of others or to obtain third-party intellectual property licenses needed for the commercialization of our products; and failure to comply with regulatory requirements could result in adverse action by regulatory agencies. These and other risks are described in greater detail in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. We may not actually achieve the goals or plans described in our forward-looking statements, and investors should not place undue reliance on these statements.
